  1. Excellent TR!! I too will commend you on your humor. Totally found myself laughing at this outloud. I keep telling myself to post my own first Photo TR of my first TPR trip which was the Texas/Midwest trip this past summer but I thought it might be too late and people really wouldn't be interested, but I think you may have inspired me! Okay and also there is the fact that I'm really not sure how to go about doing it, hehe. Good job though!

  2. SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment has always done a lot to cater to military families. Busch Gardens Williamsburg also has special offers for them.

     

     

    Yeah I was going to say, everytime I have been to Sea World in San Antonio they always have a salute to the military members in the audience. San Antonio has a big military presence with Lackland Airforce Base and Fort Sam Houston right in town.

     

    Great report! So nice to see other people's pics from the trip so I can see things from different angles.

  3. That unique flat ride was definitely fun! Weird sensation to be spinning and looking straight down at the ground below.

     

    Your TR is great Marcel! Seriously making me want to turn back time and do it all over again!

     

    Six Flags St Louis definitely had one of my best coaster memories, riding Freeze during ERT about 8 times in a row without getting off and riding with Alexis and Jared and laughing so damn hard! Seriously had never laughed that much in my life with Jared's screams and Alexis' contagious laughing.....I'm laughing right now thinking of it!

  4. Visited Texas this past weekend to meet an online friend that I have been talking to via email, text, and phone calls for 2 years now. It was scary at first because I've never met him. You all probably think I am crazy don't you?

     

    Come to find out we click really well and I do not think neither of us were expecting that. We are going to try to travel to each other and see where this goes. Like I have said all my life you can not expect to find love in your general area all the time. This may be thinking way tooooo far in advance but I have NOTHING holding me here in Maryland so the potential is awesome!

     

    I'm excited

     

     

    Yay! Wish you all the best! I made many friends online way in the past that I still keep in contact with. I even ended up dating a few. Where in Texas did you visit?

  5. In my best Sofia Petrillo voice, "picture it, Austin, 2011"

     

    At one of those crappy little parking lot fairs, so not really a themepark but play along, it was my second semester of nursing school and the coincidence could not have been more bizarre. I was with two friends celebrating my "A" on a recent exam covering the cardiac system. In line for a crazy dance flat ride when the guy in front of us starting complaining to his wife that he was feeling ill. He was sweating profusely, not uncommon in Texas, but then he started complaining of left shoulder/neck pain and tightness in his chest. I was nosey and butted in asking if he had a history of angina, and he said no. We started to leave the line and I asked his wife if she had any aspirin and miraculously she did because later I found out she had suffered a heart attack 3 years prior. So I gave him chewable aspirin and we sat down at a picnic bench. When his pain did not subside I remember my exact words to his wife "I'm just a second semester nursing student but I think he is having a heart attack". She looked at me like I was crazy when I suggested calling 911. She kept comparing her experience with her heart attack with what he was experiencing. I told her men and women can experience different syptoms and it is better to be safe than sorry.

     

    So she gets on her cell phone and tells the 911 operator : "I have a nursing student telling me my husband is having a heart attack" and finally her husband yelled at her to send an ambulance! Thank goodness the EMS crew got there quickly because once they loaded him up and hooked him up to EKG they could see for themselves he was in serious crap. The wife took down my name and cell phone number before the ambulance took him.

     

    Found out later when she called me that he had a massive heart attack just as he arrived to the Heart Hospital here and ended up having a quadruple bypass. Proud to say he is still alive and kicking! Had lunch (low sodium of course) with him and his wife a couple of months ago.

  6. Wow me too! I started streaming Battlestar Galactica and made it to season 2 before my ADD kicked in and I started reliving my childhood by watching the old 90's cartoon series The X-Men, then I got distracted again and started re-watching another show. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this disorder!
